The Milo Review--forthcoming flash fiction



Flash accepted by The Milo Review Spring Edition (online and print).

Editor, Peter Jelen, of Bareback Magazine contacted me with the good news that the editors have selected “Coveted” for their upcoming anthology.

“The Seized” will be published this month (Jan 24th) in Linguistic Erosion.

I have a few works still being considered.

I have included a poem of mine. Weird, maybe. I don't know if it is any good or not. It's not a flowery poem. It's dark and depressing. I imagine there was a young girl, at some point in time, kept up in the cabin of some larger boat, maybe a yacht, fishing boat(Libertas) and some sailor that has his way with her.

Libertas

“No signs of sun.”
maybe a little sin
Anchors aweigh!
Sailor rubs a sweaty brow
White caps lap, slap, the sides
of Libertas.

Ungodly tides

In the cabin below--
an indecent gleam;
a lavish teak;
a girl -ashen, meek,
swoons in silent rush.
Foghorn balks.
Seagull squawks,
lands on deck in gentle hush.

After shots of JD,
Blue tuna peppered, flayed,
he descends.
Girl. Sweet.
Arms flailing
Legs splayed--
for the impaling.
